Thursday Thirteen



13 Nocturnal Things About Mimi Lenox

1. I am addicted to blogging and often fall asleep at my computer. At least I know where I am when I wake up.

2. I sometimes compose music or write stories in my dreams. If only I could wake up when this happens and record the ideas. 

3. I talk in my sleep.

4. For quite some time now there has been no one to listen so I really can't be sure about #3. I plan on getting a tape recorder soon.

5. I walk in my sleep.

6. My dad nearly shot me in the middle of the night when I was twelve. He thought I was a burglar. Luckily, he pulled the blanket off my head before he pulled the trigger.

7. I have been known to walk and talk and sing in my sleep - all at the same time. A one woman show. Scary.

8. This is only troublesome when sleeping alone and there is no one to gently guide me back to bed and duct tape my mouth. I'm thinking of getting an invisible fence installed around my bed.

9. I have had the same dream periodically for 20 years; always when I'm trying to make an important decision. It never helps.

10. I have had dreams that were actual premonitions. They came true! I don't understand this phenomenon but I have learned to pay attention to such things. I recently dreamed that I would get lost on the Jersey Turnpike and need assistance from a liquor salesman.

11. I once slept with a four-legged creature who landed on my pillow at 4am and scampered up my nightgown, got tangled in my hair and caused me undue emotional turmoil for several days. I plan to write this story soon. You won't believe it. Not one of Mimi's finest hours.

12. I am not a morning person and believe alarm clocks are from Satan. I know I learned this in Sunday School. I remember clearly this being one of the Ten Epiphanies.......or something like that!

13. One of the greatest pleasures in life: fresh, clean white sheets to climb into after a marathon bubble bath knowing you can sleep late the next morning.

That's my short post for Thursday. I'm getting sleepy now.....see you tomorrow. Time for bubbles.....

julie said...

Yup! I like it here!!! Sweet list..it causes me to remember some of the odd things I've done in my sleep and also to wonder why I don't do them anymore! Hmmmm....

Sunflower Optimism said...

Mimi, in the winter I love my flannel sheets - so cozy to crawl into and toasty in the morning - I never want to get up!

Seems you need to find someone to keep you "in line" at night! ;-)

Yaxlich agrees with Mimi's view on alarm clocks.

Sanni said...

Mmmmmh, I love the scent of fresh white sheets =)

Welcome to Thursday Thirteen, Queen Mimi!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

You didn't let us know which exit in the NJ Pike. That way we can have help standing by...

Bond said...

Very strange..this is the third place I have returned to where I left a comment.. hummm
I have been told I am quite the talker, though most makes no sense to those listening.
This has always worried me! LOL
Sleepwalking.. no, never done that.

Bond...Not a pretty sight.

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie....Glad you like it here. Come back anytime!

Mimi Lenox said...

Sunflower....Yes, I need to find someone to keep me "in line." Ha! A tough job but someone's gotta do it. Sigh.

Mimi Lenox said...

Yaxlich...Queen hereby bans alarm clocks forever. Off with their heads!

Mimi Lenox said...

Sanni....I kind of like this Thursday 13 thing. Good to see you, my friend from Germany.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud.....If I knew which exit I wouldn't be lost now would I???? Silly Bud.

Love the bubble bath and clean white sheets. So tactile. That is where I live in the land of things that I can touch. I loved your banner for Thursday Thirteen, too.

Visiting for the first time, I enjoyed your 13. Except for #11. **gets the creepy shivers**

wolfbaby said...

LOL I have heard I talk in my sleep to.. wonder what I talk about... that same dream for 20 yrs would be bothersome.. how do you deal with that..

My Marrakech said...

Mimi-
I laughed out loud at your electrical fence, prompting my husband to ask: what's so funny?

Scary about your Dad almost shooting you. Eeek.

Very intrigued by the four legged creature and you. Ummm...Mimi, that's really not the way to go if you want someone to tell you whether you have been talking or singing in your sleep. Just thought I should let you know...
